An Atlas of Tolkien by David Day
The Atlas of Tolkien isn’t loads of different maps, detailing what Tolkien looks like. It’s an Atlas of the world he conjured up. It’s an Atlas of Middle Earth and the Undying Lands, it’s a map of Arda. This Atlas primarily uses words over pictures, graphs and maps, (there’s no need to worry this Atlas was created so you could understand Tolkeins work easily, so there isn’t an overwhelming amount of them but there’s no shortage of them either ). David Day did an amazing job of transcribing the history and legends of Middle Earth into this Atlas. The Atlas isn’t a story it’s the glue that sticks Tolkien’s world together. The Atlas should also be read after the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and Tolkien’s other works that are part of this epic fantasy world. In the Atlas a few secrets are revealed, like the rough destination of places in Middle Earth in our world.It’s a great book for if you just want something to read for a few minutes and then put down.
